But it all adds to the mystery. Everyone likes a good mystery. ;-)

these bloody Greeks should think of serious serious shipspotters when they do such things...

Since her international class expired long ago, all her documents and certificates were probably in Greek. No-one could probably decide whether the English translation was "Vassilios" or "Vasilios" so they just painted whatever they fancied on the hull..

Thanks pieter, altered the post
I have not seen her as leros in Piraeus , itís very difficult to I d ships in greece unless you can get to them and have a look at old markings on the hull , old names are usually still on the hull

Erratum: Ex-MARE IRATUM, not MARE ERRATUM. There is a spelling issue with this one, as she has been reported as written with one or two Sses (VASSILIOS and VASILIOS). This shot shows her with two, the shot by Simonwp has one, and I also have shot with one S. The Gross Tonnage are confusing, as often for older ships, and Miramar only reports the version with double S.

Incidently she was reported as scrapped in Turkey in 2018, yet there is not a single shot of LEROS on this site.
